    I process will Global Pat since 2009, i now see a fee of $175.00 built in to statement!
    I never noticed it because it was part of monthly bill.
    They was nothing to sign or e mail from global to inform me of charge!
    They have charge me and i’ll bet lots of customers these fees with out them knowing.
    Its been at least t 16 months @ $175.00 per month !
    I have my compliance certificate now,it wast easy on phone!
    They make it hard so u don’t comply!
    This sound like dirty pool?
    Will i be able to get my money back?
    I have had no issues with anything!

      Hi Joe,

      Unfortunately there is a very slim chance of getting refunded. You might want to leave a review on the BBB website and see if they will reply to you. I hope this helps and if you have further questions please let me know.

        Amad, great article regarding the 12 step process. Saving merchants fees on transactions also adds up, so nice to see these services offered and I’ll pass your information over to some of my larger clients. Additionally, don’t forget that one of the most important – and time consuming aspects of PCI DSS compliance – is developing all mandated policies and procedures. As a PCI-QSA for years, I’m constantly having to deal with my client’s challenges of having little or no documentation in place. If you look at the actual standards, there’s close to 50 or so policies and procedures that need to be in place, so finding a comprehensive policy packet is a must. PCI DSS is not always about the technical aspects, there’s a lot of documentation that has to be in place, so just remember that! There are numerous providers online offering cost-effective templates, so now it’s easier and more affordable than ever to put in place all mandated PCI specific documents.

          The most important thing to remember from all of this is that PCI compliance standards are constantly changing. What’s required today, might be unnecessary tomorrow, and vice-versa. Additionally, your compliance obligations will vary depending on what type of business you are.Nice article these is great looking forward to read more..
